Dr. Kline’s research interests are in the interdisciplinary areas of nutrition and cancer biology. Long term goals are to better our understanding of the biological actions of vitamin E, both naturally occurring forms and synthetic derivatives of vitamin E. Current investigations involve understanding the role of certain vitamin E compounds as tumor cell growth inhibitors. Cellular, biochemical and molecular mechanisms of vitamin E’s actions in inhibiting cell proliferation and stimulating programmed cell death (apoptosis) are under study.
